Anyway, these are just my stupid ideas.
Is this the reason for the whole uproar from the urbanist crowd? because the stadium isnt going to be by mass transit?

Sorry don't know what China has to do with anything but its not going to kill you to go outside of your boundaries to a suburban county to watch a baseball game... its not that big of a deal really.

All you guys are doing is making the pro urbanest crowd look pretty pathetic. Yes they are allowed to build nice things in the suburbs, get over it...

I am sure the Braves will be quite profitable in their new location, the new location looks great. But I will not be among the ones going.
It seems to me that you, too, are quite happy to stop Atlanta at the river. Talk about a pot and a kettle...

Besides, if that were really the case, this would be ALL over the news.

Actually Cobb letting CoA annex the Cumberland area (which would also give MARTA authority there) would be a great way for Cobb-folks to prove me wrong and have me put my foot in my mouth.

But who thinks Cobb will let that happen?

You're smoking something. Why on earth would Cobb let another jurisdiction take over one of the most economically robust parts of the county? Nevermind that the Cumberland CID would never approve or agree, what possible incentive would exist for residents or the county.

Your entire world is MARTA, but in the real world, counties don't cede key business districts to other jurisdictions.

There really isn't much of an incentive for Vinings residents to allow that, and it would be interesting to see if MARTA could expand, which might be possible given that the CoA is considered a separate "MARTA service area" from Fulton, DeKalb, and Clayton.

I don't think the CID could have any de jure say in the matter as only local residents can vote in annexation referendums.

Exactly the sort of response I expected. And Cobb-folks are still wondering why the "Atlanta" Braves are losing fans with this move? Cobb thinks it is too good to work with Atlanta.

Finally, the Cobb Braves folks have done one honest thing.
